    I should have mentioned that I did manually set the clock to the correct
    time, but it was somehow automatically set back to the wrong time.

    OS: Windows XP Pro SP2

    I'm in Boise, ID (MST). My clock is displaying the wrong time (it displays
    an hour ahead of the correct time).

    I went to Windows Update and tried to run the DST update. I get this error
    message:

    Title: KB931836 Setup Error
    Message: Update cannot be installed as a newer or same timezone update has
    already been installed on the system

    I tried restarting my machine, hoping that perhaps the update had been
    installed but not yet applied. No help.

    In my Date and Time Properties I do *not* have a tab for setting time from a
    time server.

    Thanks for any guidance you can give on fixing this problem.

  3. Do *not* change the machine's time manually.
    Start -> Run -> cmd -> time

    Bye,

    Hello--I'm also having "dynamic, ongoing" reverting of the internal clock in
    my Windows 2000, and manual re-setting or setting of time zone doesn't stop
    it. I don't know what your last line means--is that a solution to this
    problem? I may need more explanation of how what to do in DOS.

    Thanks!

    I had one 2003 server that did this to me. Removing the update and trying to
    reinstall did not work. It told me I was already updated. So I found TZEDIT
    on microsoft's website and I followed their instructions and created a new
    Eastern Time Zone for myself. To get it to take, I copied the current Eastern
    Time Zone name but left off Canada so I could see the difference. Then I set
    the correct dates for the new standards and I applied it. It appears to be
    holding. Previously I was restarting the time service and it would reset.
    After creating this new zone and restarting the service, it is still correct
    after a time synch.

    Not perfect but it will do as I am doing away with this server for a new one
    anyway.

    Good luck!

    You should also have mentioned whether you do any dual booting with
    other NTx OS... ; )

    The best solution is a time server.
